Our Family Story
A few words come to mind when reflecting on the Leslie family’s path over the last few decades: Global experiences, education, and sports. Growing up with teachers and coaches for parents, it is no surprise that Nate and Boe Leslie have fallen into the world of global travel and youth sport development. Their mother Barbara has taught around the world for 35 years including the past 12 years at International Schools in Bonn, Germany and Zurich, Switzerland. Her dedication to internationalism and education has been a tangible inspiration for her sons. Their father Bob’s career began as a professional player in the WHL, CIAU, IHL, Austria, and a brief but memorable stint with the Los Angeles Kings in the NHL. Following 15 years as a teacher and guidance counsellor in Manitoba, Bob has spent the past 20 years coaching hockey professionally in Europe’s elite leagues.
"I highly recommend The Complete Season, Hockey Drills, Small Area Games, and Hockey Goalie Drills for all youth hockey coaches. Boe and Nate Leslie have created a unique system of coach and player mentorship. I’ve enjoyed watching them develop their coaching business with the same professionalism and passion they brought to the game as players.”
Andy Murray, 2011 IIHF Hall of Fame Inductee, 2009 NHL Jack Adams Coach of the Year Finalist, Head Coach University of Western Michigan
"The Complete Season is a great tool for any youth hockey coach. The skills and systems are taught through structured practices based on a skills curriculum, ice and time management. The practices are competitive, fun, and players will improve.”
Dean Evason, former Assistant Coach, Washington Capitals, NHL
"You clearly have a passion for the game, a passion for coaching, and (most importantly) are a great teacher who knows how to break things down into simple bite size chunks that are core points to work around with a team, and translate well to the ice (and dressing room). Keep up the good work! I coach my son’s Atom House League team in Ottawa. This is my second year as head coach and I found your lgsports.ca site last year just via googling… spent a lot of time last year getting up to speed with many online videos and resources. Your site was excellent and I bought your small ice games package and your half ice season plan. Both were excellent and gave me ideas to work from. The reality of half-ice practices for us in non-rural Canada is there and having some half-ice ideas was great.”
Coach Warren, Nepean Minor Hockey Association
"August 30, 2013: Hi Nate: I thought I would write to say what a great time the kids had at your Victoria Hockey School last week. It was great to meet Boe and see both your wives and kids. I talked to another parent last night whose son was in your camp earlier in the month in at the Richmond Olympic Oval. He said how great the camp was and how well you relate to the kids. Both boys are in rep prep camp this week with try-outs starting Monday. They both look really confident on the ice and are doing well at the rep prep camps. They have really benefited from all of the work you have done with them over the last 2 and ½ years so thanks a lot.”

"I wanted to give some coaching feedback on Nate Leslie and his colleague Mike Sommer. This was the best pro coaching experience the 2004 Warriors have had this season. It was the most connected an engaged my players have been with any of the pro coaches and the feedback from players and parents was unanimously positive. He was great with both my top kids and my challenging ones and was able to run some innovative and challenging drills that were competitive and skill based, and they really had the kids attention even after school! Several parents asked if we could get Nate again! He was outstanding. If there is an option to get him out again for the remaining ice times, 2004 would welcome him for sure. Thanks.”
